The Delhi Cabinet today decided to regularise about 15,000 guest teachers and teachers engaged under the ‘Sarva Siksha Abhiyan’. According to Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, these guest teachers were having requisite qualification and standard for teaching in schools under the Directorate of School Education.
They did their job with dedication and proved to be an asset for the government schools.
Mr Sisodia said the draft Legislative proposal will be brought in the ensuing Delhi Assembly Session to be convened on October 4, for approval.
These teachers played a crucial role in some of the flagship programmes in DoE schools, including Summer Camps, Chunauti and Reading Campaign, the Cabinet, chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, observed.
Of the total 17,000 guest teachers in Delhi government schools, 15,000 will be benefited. However, about 2,000 teachers who did not meet the criteria will continue to work as guest teachers, Sisodia said.
